For many families, having a formal dining room is a thing of the past. With the popularity of the open floor plan comes the need for a dining space that has a more casual approach and can blend seamlessly with the rest of the home. While it's important to define spaces in an open floor plan the overall look should flow from one area to the next. Here are five ways to add style to your open dining space while creating a cohesive look throughout your home.

Start by choosing the right pieces. If you're having trouble blending finishes with existing furniture then opt for upholstered seating. A basic linen softens the space and works with everything, creating a seamless transition to a living space or seating area.

Style your china cabinet with more than a display of dishes. Stacked dishes give off a casual vibe. Pop in artwork and decorative pieces to add color. Pull inspiration from colors and fabrics in the spaces around it and finish with some greenery or fresh flowers.

Open up the space. If you have a china cabinet that just feels too big or too formal try removing the top and using only the base. Hang a gallery wall of artwork above it for a less structured look. The space will instantly feel more relaxed and become more like an extension of the space around it.

Add flow with lighting. Replace standard light fixtures with statement-making chandeliers that complement the style in the overall space. Hanging different but coordinating lighting helps pull each area together while giving each space its own look.

Mix materials. When you combine elements such as metal and wood it feels less like a matching set and more like a collected grouping, making it blend with easily with other pieces in the home. A wood sideboard with a metal hutch or a table with a wood top and metal base are both easy options.

With these simple tips, you can create a distinct style in your dining space, even with an open floor plan. Visit our showroom for more interior design tips that we can customize specifically for you and your home.
